Anyone else watching/seen it? Yes, it's mostly about developers... :developers: ... but it has quite a lot of IT truisms in it.
Take a baseball bat and trash all the routers, shout out "IT'S A NETWORK PROBLEM NOW, SUCKERS!" and then peel out of the parking lot in your Ferrari.

I have seen it a few times but not regularly.  It was pretty funny and very indicative of what I have seen from developers in dotcom and startup type jobs.

I got about halfway through when I realized I've already seen a show where the main character lets his pride and greed take over in his life to where he does things totally out of character with his earlier self.

It's called Breaking Bad...

See a few episodes of this show, but you don't have to stick through the whole thing to learn that some developers can be so full of themselves, it's painful.
